English term or phrase: Luck
Good luck
Vikram
German translation:Glück
Explanation:
Viel Glück = good luck.

Beware of context however i.e bad luck is "not schlechtes Glück", but
"Pech"
"He was lucky" also does not translate to "Er war glücklich" which means "he was happy". In this case the proper translation would be
"Er hatte Glück"
